Fayette Academy is a  PK3 -12 independent school located in the heart of Fayette County, Tennessee. Fayette Academy focuses on the whole child, providing a nurturing environment for children to learn and to grow. Families who select The Academy  experience a place for students to express themselves and to be a part of a community. In a Christ-centered atmosphere, we provide a superior balance of academic rigor,  artistic and athletic achievement, and spiritual growth.

History

In a small Fayette County community, parents gathered to dream of a school that would provide excellence in education with a focus upon Christian values and from that meeting The Academy was established. After much dedication and sacrifice, Fayette Academy opened its doors in the fall of 1965 with one hundred students in grades 1-8. The school site was purchased in 1966, and on January 1, 1967, students in grades 1-12 were moved from a house in Somerville to the new building where the campus stands today. Fayette Academy continues to evolve and to prepare students as lifelong learners and productive citizens.
